TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have specialized in Autism Spectrum Disorders for 20 years. I am a speech/language pathologist and Autism Resource Specialist at the early childhood level in Minnesota.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I feel that building relationships with students is priority. Once you have a positive relationship, you have an "in" to helping the child learn. I also like to use humor...who doesn't like to have fun?!? I use a ton of visual supports and am a big proponent of using PECS to help increase communication and language.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I was awarded the Star of Excellence Award from the Education Foundation of Hudson in 2009. The honor is designed to recognize teachers or staff members who have demonstrated an unusual commitment to inspire students to reach for difficult and lofty goals. Persons recognized have earned the respect of students, parents and peers through sustained effort, high moral standards and the likelihood of enduring beneficial effects on the students with whom they have worked.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

B.S. and M.S. in Communicative Disorders from UW-River Falls Minor in Early Childhood Education Autism Spectrum Disorders Certificate from Hamline University

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I have two grown children, Nate and Sophie as well as two younger stepsons, Owen and Evan. The love of my life is Jason:) I love mountain biking, hiking and going on adventures in the mountains!
